Straight to the point: It had a faint "band-aid" smell. The taste was malt forward with a stronger hop finish. Decent color, carbonation and mouthfeel. A decent beer though not a scotch ale. I would drink this beer, but not order it in the future.

Nothing remarkable.

@Hooters of Ontario

App- When this came out, It was filled to the brim and only had a couple bubbles on the top of it. A nice swirl produced some quick fading bubbles, but not much. A nice auburn brown color that was a bit dense. Hard to tell from a frozen mug.

Smell- It was a bit muted due to being cold, but I would call this more of a strong ale. A good strong malt backbone with some caramel, some citrus and a bit of booze on the nose. Fairly strong but a bit one dimensional.

Taste- It was just an okay beer. Even as it warmed most of the flavors seemed there but just small. Malty, caramel rich and a little citrus with some what I would call, a rye spice. Like a bread or mixed with a small roggenbier note.

Mouth- A bit light of the medium side of things with a bit of a thicker medium carbontion. (A bit cold, so a bit thick) Residual flavors of the caramel and malts remain.

Drink- I wanted something new at Hooters and this was the best I could get. It was my bad to not ask for a different glass. Oh well. Still like Hangar 24 overall.

Handsome auburn reddish brown in the narrow Crooked Line tulip. Quite adequate foam with nice lacing in the glass. Tangy on the tongue with some spice in the nose.

Warm malt flavors with plenty of mellow roast. Rich without being too sweet. A little bitterness sneaks up to provide a little edge. Hops are stated by the brewery to be both American and English and rated at 39 IBU. This is not particularly bitter, if you think of SN Celebration and other Christmas beers. There are some fruity flavors which give this a sense of the English style, and you could call this a Winter Warmer in that vein. Or maybe it's a California Scottish ale. In any case it's quite drinkable and interesting.

Nice dark and bitterish aftertaste. This must be my favorite Hangar 24 beer. From the 12 oz bottle bought at Bine & Vine in San Diego.

Appearance: Auburn colored, quickly disappearing head, and a wee bit of carbonation visible.

Smell: Caramel and booze.

Taste: Roasted malts, caramel, coffee, and smoke.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and dry.

The Verdict: Not bad. A solid Scottish ale, this malty brew goes down smooth. Not the head of the class maybe, but it’s everything it should be.

On tap at the BevMo Holiday Beerfest held at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, and some fruity aromas. Taste is much the same with a mild spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
